For those that love to ride granite the trail has a lot to offer. The trail consists of 4-5 slabs, a x/c climb and a viewpoint.

After the first slabs is a fast section of trail that is unique as it rides like a granite pump track.

Keep an eye out for two optional lines that break off from the flow of the trail on the right hand side. These are more difficult.

If you do not like granite slabs this trail is not worth riding.
